Die Halm und Ähren winken

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Die Halm und Ähren winken
 So reich und mild
 Die hellen Sensen blinken
 Die Garbe schwillt.

 Da wollen wir beginnen
 Den Erndtesang;
 Ach, aber mitten innen
 Schallt Glockenklang.

 Die Trauerglocke läutet
 Vom Turme her;
 Wir wissen, was es deutet:
 Sie ist nicht mehr!

 Zwei Augen ruh'n im Grabe,
 So fromm und blau
 Und auf die Gottesgabe
 Fällt Tränentau.
